Perfectionism in American, Canadian, and British college students rose by over 30 percent between 1989 and 2016, and with social pressures for ‘perfection’ now omnipresent, this number is rising further. Sadly, so is depression and burnout, which is why it has never been more important to recognize the management of perfectionism as key to productivity and profit in the workplace.
Perfectionists and their leaders often don’t understand perfectionistic thoughts and behaviors well enough to maximize their efficiency in healthy ways. Perfectionists are often left to their own devices at work; their self-learned management techniques only going so far in being affective in dealing with their unhealthy perfectionism, which affects not only productivity, but stops the employee and the company from realizing their true potential.
